US President Donald Trump has “lit the wick of war” with North Korea, foreign minister Ri Yong Ho has said. Speaking to Russia’s state-run TASS news agency, Yong Ho said his country’s nuclear program guaranteed peace and safety in the region and would not be a matter of discussion. “With his bellicose and insane statement at the United Nations, Trump has lit the wick of a war against us.
